Announcing the 2016 Selected Artists

Thank you again to all the artists around the world who submitted proposals for the 2016 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project. As you know we had 178 entries from artists in 54 different countries. It has been a difficult job to just choose 5 artists from so many good applications. We hope many of the artists who applied in 2016 will apply again for 2017.
再次感謝來自世界各地的藝術家們針對2016成龍溼地國際環境藝術計畫的提案。一如之前所提,我們總計收到178件提案,分別來自54個不同的國家。要在這麼多的提案裡僅僅選出5件作品,實在是件艱難的任務,因此希望未能獲選的藝術家們能夠諒解並持續參與我們2017的提案。

We are happy to announce the 5 selected artists:
我們很開心在此和大家宣佈今年獲選的5位藝術家:

The sketch for each of the 5 selected artists is posted here. But, it is not just the sketch that must fit the theme and the requirements of this project. This year all the artworks will be in the wetlands nature preserve area, and artists must use all biodegradable materials (either natural or recycled) that can go back to nature over time and not harm the environment of the wetlands (air, soil, plants, wildlife, water)…and still last through wind, rain and hot sun for about one year. Later we will make another post to explain more about what these artists will be creating and why they were selected this year.
在此先讓大家欣賞5位藝術家的草圖,但是,當然獲選的提案草圖不僅要切合計畫的主題與要求,今年所有的作品也都將座落在鄰近溼地的區域,藝術家們需要全部使用可生物分解的素材(包括天然的或回收的),當這些材料在回歸自然時,不會對溼地的環境(空氣/土壤/植物/野生物/水)造成傷害……,並且還要能經歷大約一年風雨及豔陽的考驗。我們將在下一篇部落格中,為大家介紹更多獲選藝術家的作品及獲選的原因。

We look forward to welcoming these artists in Cheng Long from April 7 to May 2!
讓我們一起引頸期盼及歡迎這些藝術家們在4/7-5/2進駐成龍村吧!
